Cool! Thanks, Richard.

Interesting. I only have VC10 beta 1 installed, which does not have such
a bitset::bitset(int). So the bug was introduced very recently!

Do I understand correctly that bitset::bitset(int) behaves exactly like
the old bitset::bitset(unsigned long)? Assuming that sizeof(int) ==
sizeof(unsigned long), of course!

Kind regards,
